Report: Vince Young will be released by Titans

With Matt Hasselbeck joining the Tennessee Titans and Jake Locker their quarterback of the future, Vince Young has moved from Mr. Expendable to Mr. Totally Expendable.

Unable to find a trade partner, the Titans will release Young on Thursday, according to a report.

Young, whose controversial five years in Tennessee peaked with a meltdown after a game against the Redskins and a spat with former Coach Jeff Fisher, is due a $4.25 million roster bonus and has a salary of more than $8 million due. Now, the third overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft will become a free agent.

Teams still looking for a quarterback include the Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, the Philadelphia Eagles (if a Kevin Kolb deal goes down) and Washington Redskins.
